Perfect for hedging or screens, Green beech can be grown to almost any height required and will maintain a good density and tidy form. It only needs to be clipped once or twice a year to keep it looking at its best. Beech forms a thick, interwoven hedge that is ideal for security as well as looking extremely decorative too. Fagus sylvatica tends to hold most of its leaves over winter, even though they have died off, shedduing them in the following spring as the new growth appears, helping to keep privacy to a maximum. Supplied as 50-80 cm bareroots (20 - 31"). Height: 12m (39'). Spread: 8m (26'). Planting distance: 30cm (12"). (4 plants per metre for a single line hedge).

For instant impact try one of one of our innovative trough-grown hedges! Each trough contains a 1 metre length of pre-planted hedging to create a mature looking hedge from the very moment it is planted. With well-established root systems, you’ll find that trough-grown hedges are correctly spaced, making them much easier to plant. The healthy framework of branches are nicely knitted together, and can be trimmed to the ideal height immediately after planting. Better still, you can plant them all year round, so long as adequate irrigation is provided. If planting is delayed then trough-grown hedges can be easily maintained until you are ready, without the need for ‘heeling in’.
